|"Rocky King Detective" - Murder, PH.D.|
Episode "Murder, PH.D." of the classic 50's TV series "Rocky King, Detective", which ran on the DuMont Television Network from 1950 to 1955. The series was broadcast live, and it's believed most episodes of the show are lost. The show got decent ratings and generally good reviews, and is among the better DuMont Network programs.

|''The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show'' (Episode aired 1/November/1954)|
An episode of the classic TV comedy "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show", which I presume aired during the 1st of November, 1954. This episodes consists of two segments: one with Gracie trying to get a drivers licence, and a second about George writing a book. Contains original commercials, but my video source is mediocre.

|''The Trouble with Father'' - The Business (Probably February 1952)|
An average episode of the early 1950s sitcom "The Trouble with Father". I'm not sure if I got the episode title or date right, but it does feature some of the original commercials (more fun than you'd think) and a plot line that shows the more things change, the more they stay the same. In this episode, Stu ends up co-owning a Dress-shop. I hope the picture quality isn't too awful.
